Fairyhouse Membership Maiden Hurdle of £7,500.00 4-y-o plus

Formscan By Thomas Weekes - CARSONSTOWN BRIDGE may be a more reliable proposition than a few of his rivals. The dual ptp winner has some reasonably good track form to his name and returned from a long break to run well enough at Down Royal over Christmas. Some Drama was half a length behind the selection then and although 5lbs better off today, the selection may come on more from the run. Raise Hell is the likely favourite following an improved effort at Thurles in November. He swerved the Christmas period and while this is an average contest, his form last season was poor and has still plenty to prove, with the third placed horse at Thurles being well beaten on his next start. Classic Event showed improved form latest but may still need to improve a little to win while Troubled has plenty to prove.
